Kerpoof! Disney buys creative kids Web site
EmptyDisney said Thursday that it has paid an undisclosed amount for Kerpoof Studios, a creator of online tools that allow kids to use computers to make artwork, write stories and create short movies.
Kerpoof's technology has been integrated into Disney.com, allowing users to create artwork around properties including Mickey Mouse and characters from such films as "Cars" and "The Little Mermaid."
Disney said it will continue to run Kerpoof.com, and that company will remain in Colorado. Kerpoof co-founder Krista Marks has been named GM of Disney Online Kerpoof Studios. (partialdiff)
